Market Analysis
Aon Benfield Analytics

The financial market crisis has sharpened demand for detailed analysis of the performance, balance sheet strength and competitive position of reinsurance counterparties. Annual assessment of legal entities on a standalone basis is no longer considered adequate. Informed decision-making now requires group-level analysis and insight into the positioning of these carriers within the wider reinsurance market.

Recognizing the importance of such analysis, Aon Benfield Analytics’ Market Analysis team supports clients throughout their reinsurance security selection and monitoring process. Keeping updated on the latest developments at individual company, group and market levels demands significant resources, especially in today’s challenging economic environment.

Keeping You Informed

With 11 experts focused purely on the reinsurance sector, the Market Analysis team is best positioned to deliver key information to clients on their reinsurance counterparties. The team brings a deep understanding of the industry, a discerning eye for dissecting vast quantities of information and direct access to reinsurer senior management teams.

Detailed profile reports are produced on all major reinsurance groups, reinsurance companies and Lloyd’s syndicates operating worldwide. To complement this output, a Market News service ensures that clients are kept fully appraised of significant developments among the major reinsurers.

This targeted effort is client-led and is focused on mainstream markets where the demand for information is greatest. However, the Market Analysis team also has the experience and contacts to deal with bespoke queries and data requests on a much broader spectrum of market participants.

At an industry level, the team produces the Aon Benfield Aggregate (‘ABA’) report series, providing a quarterly update of key reinsurance market trends, as well as biennial Lloyd’s Updates and a multitude of other briefings and research pieces.
